“I feel like the team could have won. He had goal situations that could not be finished. We are left with a good image of the game ”, the coach began.
“You have to bear in mind that the game is difficult against a complicated opponent. It is difficult to achieve supremacy in this football so even. It was difficult because of the heat and humidity that was there for the freshness of the equipment. Anyway, in my opinion, the team did very well ”, added the DT.
In addition, he highlighted the work done by the players who had to enter for the injured: “We have lost some players and their replacements have done very well. The internal competition that this group has is very good, and it continues to grow ”.

“I highlight the effort my players made. It is not easy to maintain a regularity after the stop. It makes you proud to see the commitment of my players, “he added.
“It is going to be a complex game. This is a 180 minute match. The key is still open and with the desire and desire to advance the phase. It is a point for each one. We will have to prepare the team for the 90 minutes to come. It is going to be an even game and I trust blindly in my team to go through the phase ”, he closed the second leg throbbing.
